Drinking in Durango

Durango Microbreweries, beer in Durango, Co, Southwest Colorado

Durango is home to many microbreweries, which is a result of many people who want to drink beer. While these craft beer establishments in Durango are considered microbreweries, they brew a comparable amount of beer of that to larger scale operations. The defining factor is the family-owned and locally-owned aspect. Consequently, these microbreweries offer a variety of activities that don’t always necessitate drinking.

As the seventh largest microbrewery in Colorado, Ska is well-known in Durango, to say the least. The original can designs are familiar in any Colorado liquor store, as well as other states, I imagine. Like most other breweries here in Southwest Colorado, Ska began with just a few people who loved beer and wanted to make their passion into a career. Ska brewing offers release parties of their seasonal beers, along with many other events throughout the year.
